Bear finds a way to keep cool

A dip in a backyard spa is a nice way to cool off -- especially if you're covered in fur.

Jenny Sue Rhoades spotted a black bear in the yard of her central Florida home.

Rhoades says she doesn't keep her spa heated in the summer.

At first the bear just bent down for a drink, then it jumped in all the way.

But the bear didn't have much time to relax.

Rhoades banged on her patio table to scare it way.

Rhoades lives near a state park and has seen bears in her yard before.
